Manhole covers Art
In 2000-2001, in Moscow was held the global mail-art project “Sewers of the World, Unite”, which foundation were the manholes photos from around the world, as well as the author’s interpretation of the theme in the form of creative projects and facilities. It is so happened that the manholes have become an integral part of the city streets. They are located in a completely incomprehensible places. Some on the road, some right on the sidewalks. If the manholes are on the road – they perform utilitarian function, but with sidewalks the story is more complicated. Manholes on the pedestrian zone can not be ugly. By design of the manholes, the inhabitants of the City can be judged. In the cities where people love and respect their place of living, the manholes can be a real piece of art.
